    Anton Chekhov is revered as a boldly innovative playwright and short story writer—but he wrote more than just plays and stories.

  • Dangerous Framesby Nicholas J. G. Winter

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 20.00

    In addition to their obvious roles in American politics, race and gender also work in hidden ways to profoundly influence the way we think—and vote—about a vast array of issues that don’t seem related to either category.

  • The Invisible Dragonby Dave Hickey

    University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 15.00

    The Invisible Dragon made a lot of noise for a little book When it was originally published in 1993 it was championed by artists for its forceful call for a reconsideration of beauty—and savaged by more theoretically oriented critics who dismissed the very concept of beauty as naive, igniting a debate that has shown no sign of flagging. ... more...

    Americans take for granted that government does not have the right to permanently seize private property without just compensation.
